    Re: Stupid Prius C commercials

    Why would anyone drive the ugliest vehicle in history AKA the Prius? That's the real question

    Re: Stupid Prius C commercials

    I may buy something like a Prius C next time I go to buy a car. To be able to afford a Corvette in the 3rd stall I'd be willing to have a Prius C as a daily driver. In reality though I'd probably just buy a used Corrola or something similar.

    You might want to rethink your strategy. The $12,000 difference in price will buy a lot of gas. And I average about 40 mpg with my Corolla.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I am all for gas efficiency, but I am pretty sure the batteries used in the Prius are terrible on the environment.

    Re: Stupid Prius C commercials

    Wasn't there an article someone posted here recently that at $4/gallon, (assuming 12K miles/year) it would take the average Prius owner over 7 years to break even versus a fuel-efficient, non-hybrid vehicle, like a corolla?

    For the most part (unless the buyers are putting on tons of miles), Prius owners' primary reason for purchasing that vehicle is not economics, it's because they want to be environmentally friendly (and yes, there is still a discussion about the batteries' effect on the environment)

    Re: Stupid Prius C commercials

    I drove by a guy driving a Prius one time in a snow bank. Normally I would stop but I assumed he saved enough on gas money to afford a tow truck. So I kept driving in my V8 Hemi powered charger.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    That is obviously the market they are going for.

    Put me down as another who hates these commercials. I just keep waiting for R Kelly to come in an pee on those people. (IDK what that has to do with liberals or prius' but just seems like the right thing to do)
